Last week Sony Pictures announced that the highly anticipated comedy The Interview would be pulled from theaters. Beforehand, Sony had allowed theater chains to pull the film in light of terrorist threats from a group of hackers. But, freedom has prevailed! You will be able to see The Interview streaming NOW on YouTube, Google Play and Xbox. You can also be see it in limited theaters tomorrow.

Starting today, Sony will give you the option of renting the film on YouTube, Google Play and Xbox for $5.99. The streams start at 1pm Eastern time today, with an official website set up for anyone who may not have access to those services. The film is also having a limited theatrical release, starting tomorrow and continuing throughout December. There are also rumblings that Sony is considering releasing the film through Netflix.
Sony is obviously trying to make the very best of a bad situation, releasing the film through online services and having a limited theatrical release might allow the studio to break even in their profits.

And while the film will be released online, actor Seth Rogen urges fans to try their best to see it in theaters. Screen Shot 2014-12-24 at 12.31.39 PM

Regardless, ‘The Interview’ has gotten the marketing and publicity that many films only dream of, and I’m sure this is a film audiences will not forget in the coming years, given its controversial themes.
